First, let me say that I'm not sure if this is appropriate for this forum or not. It seemed the most logical spot to post it, but if it would be better placed somewhere else, please move it and accept my apologies. I've had the bare basics of an idea for a fan series for a some time now. I've began fleshing it out more on paper and what I present is a bullet point series of events that are the setup for the series. I will point out, this is a working list for the concept and may change at some point. And yes, it begins amid the events of the Destiny storyline from the books. Star Trek: Adelphous is a working title, simply because my first choice (Aurora) is already being used. I've got a few other title ideas that I will list at some point if anyone is interested in them. That is about it, so here it is. *** Star Trek:Adelphous Premise Setup 2381 The destruction of two planets is followed by a message. “We are the Borg. You will be annihilated.” Continuing attacks soon lead to a full scale Borg Invasion into the Alpha and Beta Quadrants resulting in the Federation entering into a multi-world alliance to battle them. As the Borg attack planet after planet, ships from the Federation Alliance are sent to prevent the attack and destruction of an Independent world on the fringes of Federation space. Adelphous IV Shortly after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, this has been the location of a top secret joint project between the Federation, Klingon Empire, Romulan Star Empire, and Cardassian Union to develop a prototype ship to use against the Borg. Unfinished, the prototype ship is unable to assist in fending off a calculated Borg attack and the fleet is nearly destroyed. Before the Borg cubes are able to destroy the world, an anomaly appears and the planet begins to disintegrate. The planet, surviving ships, and debris of the destroyed are sucked into the anomaly. Unknown Galaxy Adelphous IV reforms in orbit of a class K star in a galaxy beyond the known universe, along with ships and debris in orbit. Some debris from wrecked ships is caught in the planets gravity as it reforms and rains down to the surface creating a ship graveyard planetside along with the one in orbit. Surviving ships are heavily damaged and require varying amounts of repair to be operational, limiting travel to only shuttles. For the most part, everything on the surface survived undamaged. *** That's it. As for the actual start of the series, there are two options I am considering. Picking up right where the setup ends or... Jumping forward a century or so. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Both have a lot of potential while offering two very different takes on what the series would be. I will make another post later covering some of my thoughts on both scenarios. It could end up coming down to which is the most realistic to film. Feel free to tell me what you think. Tell me what you like or dislike. If you have suggestions, I'm open to hearing them. One thing I may have jumped the gun on (I tend to like to get everything in place really early for projects) is I've contacted and obtained permission to use the uniform design Jamie Takahashi came up with and posted at Deviant Art.
